What is user point?When user contributes content, user can earn points:
|SWP Author Earn*||1|
|Inviting Anyone Email||0.2|
There is a daily point limit for each type of content. User can continue contributing contents but won't be able to earn point once daily limit is reached for that type of content.
User can spend points to access site wide premium (SWP) contents. Each SWP post costs 2 points. For each of two points payed by reader, SWP post author earns one point and Valpont earns one point.
In addition to content contribution, points can also be purchased at purchase points.
Point balance is shown on user's profile header. User can only see his own point balance. User can go to "Point History" tab to check earning and spending history of points.
To avoid abuse of the system, user point balance needs to initially reach 5 before user can spend points. Valpont reserves the right to adjust or even clear user's points at any time if improper behavior, such as spamming, is detected.
What is user impact point?User impact (or reputation) point is different from user (contribution) point in that impact point reflects not only user's contribution but also, maybe more so, other users' rating and feedback on this user and his/her contents.
User impact point is displayed at user's profile header and also in member list. Users can see each other's impact points.
